Abbie and Charlie were married on 30 July 2021 at Gaynes Park. Their flowers were mostly gyp based, with white roses, astilbe and a small amount of foliage. This bench at Gaynes Park makes the perfect backdrop for photographing the bridal bouquet!
Abbie's bridesmaids carried smaller, all gypsophila bouquets, bound with ivory ribbon.
Charlie wore a buttonhole to match the bridal bouquet, with a rose, astilbe and gypsophila. His groomsmen wore all gypsophila to match the bridesmaid bouquets.
We were originally going to tie gypsophila onto the end of the chairs lining the aisle, but the orangery was set up with the chairs facing into the middle rather than in rows down a central aisle, so chair ends wouldn't really work. We therefore decided to line the gyp up in jars along the back wall of the ceremony area. The jars were later to become part of the table centrepieces, matching the rustic feel of the venue.
I also added garlands of gypsophila and eucalyptus to the welcome sign and seating plan. The venue wasn't quite ready when I arrived to set up so I did these in a side room so they're not the best photos!
I also made thank you bouquets for the two mums, with an additional last minute bouquet for the bride's friend.

I hope Abbie and Charlie had an amazing day!
